What had happened tc thc schooner  North should happen to the others  also if British fair play was pursued.

JAPAN'S ASPIRATIONS J  In   the November  number of Noilh  American     Review  Frederic  C.   Pen-  field, who recently paid a Msii of several  months     to Japan     and  China,  wntes of "Japan's Commercial Aspirations "   The     determination  of   the  JaiMiitoe     people  to  take advantage  of the opportunity  now present.'.! to  them :s 'wcli-nifch  unanimous,   though  they aie well aware  that they cannot  make ihe     most ol it without an immense amount of     hanl  woik.     The  natural lc-sourccs     oi .Japan arc considerable.      Agriculturally,   Japan   is  nearly  as unproductive as A recto   oi  Norway, and Japan cannot be consul  crcd a producer     oi minerals oi sufficient  importance to  aspire to  a i-io-  JitaUc  career   through  them,   though  the sitiia'..ou may be changed to sonn;  eMcnt  when she has had time  to  develop the     vast beds of coal end ir0.n  m the southern     portion,of Saghaim.  Rut  Japan aspires to  he the  Asiatic  equivalent of Great Britain, and it is  known to be her plan to coionwe Co-  lea and Manchuria,  in which, because  of certain advantages  of geographical  position and of affinity, with the population,  she   must,   despite  the  open  door,   achieve  and   maintain  commercial pnmacy in competition  with oth  er nations.      One   outstanding   ambition of the Japanese people is to create an ocean commerce great enough  to make them thc carriers of the Orient and the  mercantile  fleets     now  living  their   flags,   and  thc  shipyards  now in operation,  give good promise  that (this ambition will be Sully realised.       In  that case   thc     dream of  sanguine     Americans  that  the  stars  and. stupes  will   dominate   the  Pacific, will be unfulfilled.     But, even so,  .the  United  States  will be an  active  partner in thc trade of   the Ear  East  for the workshops  and  mills  of Japan     must look to     America for thc  greater part  of the raw material on  which they are to employ  themselves.  Mr.   Pcnlield says:  "In  ISI'1 Japan     had only fi.r)7,2fifl  tons-of     merchant  shipping;  she has.  now  upwards- of a million tons,  represented by   five thousand  registered  vessels.   Almost     half the  steamers  ���������entering     Japanese     ports  fiy     thc  Rising Sun,  and  Japan's tonnage at  this   lime is greater than that       of  Russia,   Austria,   Sweden,   Pcnmaik,  or .Holland.    In  the  matter of oversea tonnage  Japan  is far ahead     of  the United States.    One  fleet of 'Japanese mail steamers, the Nippon Yu-  scn   Kaislia,   whose   president,   Rem-  pei   Kondo,   is  one  of  Japan's  most  progressive  men,   is, numerically  and  in'    tonnage  larger  than  any  ocean'  line  under the stars  and   stripes.   It  has   seventy ships,   aggregating  23G,-  -  000      tons.    A  dozen  of  its vessels,  making the  service between   Yokohama and     London,   are four teen-knot  .ships.

Dr  theory emanates .originally, Horn Tar's, where a famous sa\ ant. Dr. i\lec-  hniiioil iiy name, cinei oi tho Pasteui  Ins ti Lute, has discovered the long  .sought lountanii ,of youth in the un-  romantc form oi a microbe which  causes the souring of nnik. Dr. Mac-  JSIutt,-who thinks / nfc valuable auv.i  even worthy of prolongation, after '10  evp'laiuod the operation of this micro nc as  ioi lows:  ������������������You  ai!     know,," she said,  ������������������that  the  phagocytes,   or   white corpuscles'  oi Wo  mood aie cngageii in a continual  struggle against  microbes  injurious to ino     t>j stem.        Now, it'is a  em ions   fact  that  when  thc  phagocytes hud  tins     struggle going against  them 'they     turn upon ^wl at Hick th-j  body.      When     the- hair  turns  white,  for ' instance.      it  is because  the pha  gocyttS' arc     devouruijj  the. coloring  matter.   Tins     process is no difiercnt  from that     winch takes place in any  ordinary .condition of ill  health.    The  disease of the arteries winch attacks  old ipeople is simply aiijinflamation."  The irnLiLun  winch'causes this action of the. phagocytes in the aged is  caused  by the production in the body  of injurious miqiobes, rand   Professor  lVictchnikoli's .   theory is that by aiding the     phagocytes in their struggle  against   these organisms   ihcy  can   be  presented  ' from attacking thc body.  He believes he has discovered a means  of accomplishing     this     end  in sour  imikv which contains a'.germ which lie  regards  as     an antidote  to many  of  the germs  which produce diseases and  death.  Mis MacNutt tonic a less material  view oi things In her opinion it  was not soul milk for which poor liu  mauit} was suflering, but "exercises  of the -soul." Mrs. Helena Secor  Tonics did not agree with cither of  these views.
